Question about 1998 Volvo V70
Turn your steering wheel left or right side. If it moves, then good for you. But if doesn't, it probably means that locking system in the steering wheel is damaged. For this, you can just turn the steering wheel opposite to the direction of the car wheels. Most of the time, cars are turned off with the wheels turned on the opposite directions, which makes the key get stuck in the ignition due to pressure in the steering wheel. When the pressure is released from the steering column, a click can be heard and key is released.
If no luck, there might be a problem with shifter mechanism, which means that you have a trip to the repair shop in store for you. Get this problem addressed immediately, as it could mean that your shift interlock is out of order, which can increase the chances of deploying the air bag up in your face, causing a serious injury.

try some graphite or teflon based lube, usually available at hardware stores or your local locksmith.
Hope this is of some help.

I had the same problem, I found out that there was a spring that broke off in the shifter and got jamed into the shifter's path, I removed the spring and was able to get the key out after the shifter was all the way into the parked position. I however have another problem now, when I did so the wiring harness started to smoke the next day when I went to start the car.

There is an interior fuse panel just to the left of the passenger's left knee. The cover It is held on by velcro. After you take off the cover, you will see a diagram on the inside of the cover telling you which fuse is for what. This is covered in your manual, which is in the glovebox. If you do not have a manual you can get one off ebay for a few bucks.
